1287  DR STONE: To ask the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport—

(1) Is he aware that travellers regularly face delays of up to two hours between Seymour and Albury on the Victorian section of the Melbourne to Sydney railway track.

(2) What measures is he taking to have Australian Rail Track Corporation maintain this line so that trains can safely travel at normal speeds, and to prevent such delays in the future.

(3) If repairs to the line are scheduled to take some time, what alternative forms of transport will the Government provide for the travelling public.
